Planets Under Attack

Xbox 360
Also on PlayStation 3


Without the versatility of a keyboard and mouse, strategy games on consoles have had a rough history. With the exception of the stellar XCOM: Enemy Unknown, even the best attempts feel clunky. Targem Games’ under-the-radar Planets Under Attack doesn’t avoid this fate, but it still manages to be an enjoyable (albeit stressful) experience at times. I found it difficult to explain the concept of Planets Under Attack to onlookers, since I didn’t fully grasp its gameplay until several missions in. Each stage presents an assortment of planets, some stationary and some in orbit. Playing
